Eugene was born on July 28, 1927, in Fort Dodge, Iowa to John & Miriam (Scharf) Brown. After graduating from Fort Dodge High School in 1945, he enlisted in the U.S. Navy, serving as a hospital corpsman at Naval hospitals in Shoemaker and Oakland, California. Following discharge from the Navy in 1957, he returned to Fort Dodge to attend Fort Dodge Junior College, graduating in 1949. He then enrolled in the University of Iowa to finish his last year of pre-med studies. He then enrolled in the College of Medicine, graduating in 1954 with an M.D. Degree. After an internship at Broadlawns Hospital in Des Moines, he moved to Webster City, where he had his private practice from 1955-1995. He was a member of the Iowa State Medical Society, AMA, Hamilton County Medical Society and Hamilton Hospital Staff. He held many offices in the County Medical Society and was part of the Hamilton Hospital Medical Staff.

 

He was united in marriage to Leora Anna Nimke on June 26, 1949, at Trinity Lutheran Church, in Fort Dodge, Iowa. The family enjoyed vacationing in the Teton National Park in Wyoming and spent seventeen summer vacations there. They also enjoyed visiting the New England States in the fall. Several trips to Europe were also included in their travel plans, with Germany being the main focus on those trips, where they were able to attend two performances of the Passion Play.

 

Eugene was a member of St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Webster City, where he served on many committees and as a church officer. He also served as an organist, and the choir director for many years.
